NAB 2016: FOR-A to Showcase New 4K Multi-Viewer Technology

Cypress, CA – FOR-A announces that it will introduce new multi-viewer solutions at the upcoming NAB Show, taking place April 16-19 in Las Vegas. The company will unveil its new MV-1200 4K multi-viewer and MFR-16MV multi-viewer output board option for the MFR-3000 routing switcher, and will showcase new features for its popular 4K-compatible MV-4200 multi-viewer solution in Booth C5117.

Making its debut at NAB is FOR-A’s compact, high-performance MV-1200 multi-viewer. The 16-input, 6-output solution comes in a 1U frame, features a versatile mixed-source environment, and is available in two models: 4-Input, 1-Output HDMI as standard in its MV-1200 unit, or 4-input, 1-output 3G/HD/SD-SDI as standard in its MV-1210 version. With the option to add up to 16 inputs on either model by installing option cards, the MV-1200 enables users to build a versatile, flexible 4K editing environment. Some features of the multi-viewer include a Layout Manager for user customization, audio level display for up to 16 channels, audio monitoring output, error log display, and the option to stream video from the unit over Ethernet.

FOR-A will also introduce significant new features to its high-performance MV-4200 multi-viewer. One new feature is the unit’s HDMI 2.0b output support for use in monitoring environments that will be displaying 4K ultra HD TV. With HDMI 2.0b output support, a single HDMI cable enables 4K output. Users can independently customize 4K/HD output and layout settings for SDI and HDMI output, allowing 4K/HD mixed output. The 2RU multi-viewer also features an improved Layout Manager for more ease of use, mixed 2K/4K output and HD to 4K up-resizing. The MV-4200 now comes standard with new display options, including logo display in title areas, text entered in a Web browser to be shown as titles, and support of non–English language displays. The 4K-compatible unit allows up to 68 inputs of mixed 3G/HD/SD-SDI, composite, HDMI, DVI or RGBHV inputs with optional cards, and provides up to 8 independent monitor outputs.

FOR-A’s MFR-16MV multi-viewer option for the MFR-3000 routing switcher is also new for NAB. Allowing for simpler cabling and more efficient space utilization, the MFR-16MV output board can install to the MFR-3000 to enable up to 4x 16-split displays. It allows freely assignable source and destination displays, and enables operators to combine ¼, 1/9, and 1/16-size split screen windows to configure a split screen display layout.
